Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who successfully underwent a kidney transplant on May 14 at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), has been shifted out of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and he is recovering now.

Jaitley’s post-operative recovery was being closely monitored by a team of transplant surgeons, pulmonologist, nephrologist, endocrinologist, cardiologist and critical care experts among others.

“He was shifted out of the ICU to a private ward of the Cardio-Neuro Centre during the weekend. He is recovering well,” a source at AIIMS told.

A team of 20 personnel, including transplant anesthesiologists and transplant surgeons, conducted the surgery at the cardio-thoracic centre.

Former chief of AIIMS renal transplant division Sandeep Guleria, currently working with Apollo Hospital, was part of the medical team, who performed the surgery on Jaitley. Surgeon V K Bansal, AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria and nephrologist Sandeep Mahajan were the other members who carried the surgery.
